With two squash courts, Letchworth Sports and Tennis Club aims to raise the profile of squash in the area by encouraging new players to take up the game, existing players to play more frequently and lapsed players to return to the game.
Return to Squash
Some positive news for our squash members! We are super excited to be returning to the sport we love after the longest winter ever!
Although regular squash is not yet permitted outside of your household/support bubble, this is a great time to get back on court for some solo practise or to have some coaching to get you back up to speed before the next stage of reopening.
On court adult 1-1 and children's 1-1/group coaching will be allowed. The exact rules are yet to be confirmed but it is likely that this will incorporate socially distanced practise only. Even if this is the case, this enables a wide range of drills to work on technique, ball control, movement, and squash specific strength/fitness.
We can also use the 'squash cannon' ball feeding machine. This gives you the opportunity to maximize your time on court to hit hundreds of balls, so you can really focus on a certain shot, combinations of shots and movement or options in a particular area of the court. This is often used as a part of regular coaching sessions, but if members wish, we can also arrange supervised rentals. We can assist you in operating the machine but otherwise stay off court.
Also, we are now running twice weekly outside group squash fit sessions.
For any enquiries re coaching, ball machine rentals or group fitness please get in touch with Greg on 07990 755433 or via www.superstarsquash.com.
Please note that all court bookings are to be made online and we will be live from Wednesday 7th April from 8pm. Also continue to use the signing in folder at the entrance to the squash courts prior to play, and ensure you sanitise your hands. The toilet facilities will be available to use within the block, but the showers will remain closed until further notice. Please do not use the upper viewing gallery in the squash block and use a mask when entering the block or leaving court.
We acknowledge this is a very cautious step back into squash, but it is an exciting step nonetheless and fingers crossed the May update provides even more flexibility for squash players!
